Dale Earnhardt Jr. didn’t hold back one bit on Sunday with his criticism after the late-race caution that brought a confusion among the drivers and  spectators.

Earnhardt Jr. was swift to criticize the premature caution surrounding NASCAR’s All-Star race. And taking to Twitter Sunday, he called out nascar for it.

“Nascar is gonna gladly let you debate the window net so as you don’t reflect on how ridiculous that yellow flag situation was as Blaney was crossing the finish line to win,” Dale Jr. tweeted.

Yahoo author Nick Bromberg pointed out that it was great to see a NASCAR broadcaster like Dale tweet something like this however, also slightly frustrating to know that these exact words would never be said on an NBC telecast.

“So what’s this about the All Star race and it’s million dollar prize for the winner?” Dale Jr. asked. “Is it true that some think that’s not such a big deal? No way that can be the case. Just seeing some chatter on here and wonder if I’m misinterpreting something.”

“I guess we could consider the prize for winning the best paying race of the season. The Daytona 500. That’s roughly 2 million $$ to the winner. For sure the AllStar race should pay double or triple that to set itself apart. Not sure how that affects the drivers ambition.” He added

Ryan Blaney became the 26th different winner and fourth Team Penske driver to win m in the All-Star Race’s 38-year racing history.
